Robbery suspect nabbed after 38-mile chase fiery crash
BROWNSVILLE, Ohio (11/28/07)--An Ohio man who allegedly robbed a credit union, led police on 38-mile car chase, before he crashed into a tractor trailer and was arrested by authorities. Herman L. Hawkins, 58, was first noticed by police when he pulled into the parking lot of CME CU in Columbus. Hawkins allegedly entered the credit union, gave the teller a note that said he had a gun and then fled with an undetermined amount cash, according to Columbus Police Sgt. Rich Weiner (centralohio.com and mansfieldnewsjournal.com Nov. 27). Police had to use a Taser to subdue Hawkins, Weiner said. Hawkins also is being charged with robbing the same credit union on Nov. 7. After the robbery, Hawkins led police more than 30 miles down Interstate 70, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph, navigating through several roadblocks, before hitting the tractor trailer and rupturing the truck’s fuel tanks in Brownsville. After the collision, another car skidded into the truck. No one was injured. However, the eastbound lanes of the interstate were closed for more than five hours, while crews mopped up 75 to 100 gallons of diesel spilled from the ruptured gas tank (lancastereaglegazette.com Nov. 26).
